August 31st, 2018. Gunnerside, Swaledale.


Another early start to arrive in Gunnerside at sunrise. Weather conditions were much improved from my previous visit and I was able to quickly gather a handful of useable images.




August 23rd, 2018. Keld and Gunnerside


Unfortunately the  ‘smart object tool’ that I’ve used until now to create the News page will no longer be supported by the software manufacturer after next week so I’ll need to find an alternative; very irritating.

Anyway, I made a return visit to Swaledale today, primarily to do some location scouting around Gunnerside,, but, if the weather wasn’t looking promising, my contingency plan was to head for the waterfalls at Keld. There was heavy cloud cover at sunrise, so I headed straight for Keld and East Gill Force. It’s a great number of years since I’d photographed this waterfall; that was in the days of film. My current effort was not nearly so good as that picture, but a least the red berries of a foreground tree provided something better than a straight shot of the waterfall.

Gunnerside is a work in progress; I’ll need to return when the lighting is better, but at least I’ve an idea now of the shots I want.





September 5th, 2018. Muker Show


The weather was perfect for the 113th annual Muker Show held in its Swaledale setting in the fields behind the village.

Beside the usual agicultural activities there were three camera crews on site filming TV documentaries.
